Food Outreach Program

All food service programs are provided free of charge to anyone who is hungry, regardless of age, gender, national origin, ethnic background, religion, or socioeconomic group.

On-site meals

Freshly prepared and nutritious meals are served in our dining room three times a day, seven days a week, to our residents and emergency shelter guests, along with low-income individuals and families from the community.

Mobile Kitchens

Our two Mobile Kitchens make regular visits to impoverished neighborhoods in Bridgeport and South Norwalk. Caring volunteers serve wholesome meals, encouraging words and heartfelt prayers to men, women and children who rely on the Mission for food and are unable to come to the dining room at our Main Campus.

Food Pantry

Those who are struggling to make ends meet can receive a Pantry Bag filled with enough food to feed their family for one week and sometimes more. This critical support often allows working-poor families to pay for other necessities such as rent, utilities or medical bills.

Great ThanksGiving Project

A turkey and bag of fixings – along with 15,000 coats and winter-wear items – are distributed to more than 3,200 families in Bridgeport and South Norwalk during this annual holiday program, the Mission’s largest outreach of the year.

Did You Know?

The Mission provides more than 550,000 meals each year through Mobile Kitchen distributions, our Great ThanksGiving Project, daily Pantry Bags and meals served in our dining room.
